    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    People & management of immediate work group, work-life balance, stock purchase plan, 6% 401k matching, learning & development opportunities, many long-term employees, flexibility, medical & dental benefits, family-friendly, very generous leave & vacation time

    Cons

    Ethics & management at high level, lower compensation/salary than other companies, no/minimal raises & bonuses for high-performing long term employees

    Advice to Management

    Upper management ruined WF reputation by acting illegally, causing culture & morale to decline and reduced bonuses for everyone. Lower level employees suffered the most.

    I have been working at Wells Fargo as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Inclusiveness, flexibility, autonomy, support, and opportunity.

    Cons

    Rigid structure, lower pay than expected, no sign of being converted from a contract to full time employment.

    Advice to Management

    Pay a bit more to reflect the area people work in (I'm in the San Francisco Bay Area). Encourage division/department/floor social interactions with more team or cross-team building events.

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits, good projects, lot of different groups, some opportunities, good brand, opportunities to take training, lot of senior folks to get advice

    Very big company, can feel lost, less opportunities for growth, too many senior managers who talk but don't work, not easy to implement change, products are complex

    Hire more people who work and not just people at higher levels

    Pros

    Great company, potential to move up if you perform, phenomenal management!

    More of an emphasis on sales than service, this could however be a pro for you like it was for me!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!

    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, great job availability all over the US, decent support for employees beyond the immediate job role, wide variety of jobs

    Cons

    Hard to move up, easy to be stunted by a poor manager, difficult to actually connect with all the opportunities the company has, lots of opportunities to grow require an exceptional amount of self-driven work, I don't expect anything to be just given to me, but it is nice to be supported when taking those challenges on

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your lower-level employees, we see everything going to management and realize that we'll have to go elsewhere to find that kind of support

    Pros

    People treat you decently. Most people try to collaborate. Work/life balance is excellent - very flexible.

    Cons

    No evaluation of what works after product launch. Not enough user testing or customer feedback for most projects. Design and promotion decisions made through management relationships, politics, not merit of ideas or performance.

    Advice to Management

    Standardize and improve both design and performance evaluation. Give the design department equal control of project and testing budgets, and force collaboration between design and product.
